  1. Elyse, they are all too beautiful to pick one. I like the 2 gold ones. I used to go to the costume institute at the Met. Loved it. Did you know Denise Blank Fleishman got the idea for her shoe inserts which was her first product in her business called gutzees, from an exhibit at that museum. check out her website; high end stufF!

  2. Each dress is a work of art! Beautiful!
